Gold Price Today: After a break in the dollar’s rally alleviated pressure on bullion, gold prices edged up on Thursday from nine-month lows touched in the previous session. The analysts cautioned that the relief in the yellow metal was likely to be temporary.
At 10.50 am, gold contracts were trading higher by 0.31 percent at Rs 50,657 for 10 grams while silver was also trading higher by 0.52% percent to Rs 57,022 a kilogram on the Multi-Commodity Exchange (MCX).
Spot gold firmed 0.3% to $1,744.19 per ounce by 0303 GMT, as the dollar dipped slightly from the 20-year highs reached on Wednesday, lending support to greenback-priced bullion. Whereas Spot silver rose 0.7% to $19.32 per ounce. The U.S. gold futures rose 0.3% to $1,741.80.
“With momentum pointing south, dip buyers are effectively trying to catch a falling knife,” Matt Simpson, senior market analyst at City Index told Reuters.
“$1,721 and $1,700 are potential levels of support for bulls to consider taking a punt.. but until the dollar tops, it likely is a punt.”
In the prior session, strength in the dollar pushed bullion down as much as 1.9% to its lowest level since Sept. 30 at $1,731.00.
“This decline has room to continue,” Ilya Spivak, a currency strategist at DailyFX said, adding that if gold falls through support at $1,715 per ounce, it could head under the $1,700 figure to the vicinity of about $1,680.
